"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

It's Pi Day

When I heard it was Pi Day, excuse me Day, I knew I had to celebrate on account of my peculiar love of anything celluloid numbery in the movies as evidenced by "first and last" and anything time-stampey. Peculiar because I am terrible at and completely uninterested in math. But how to celebrate? Since Pi = 3.14159265 I added up all those numbers and divided them by three. So herewith a 12 screenshot puzzle. How did I choose the screenshots?

  1. I randomly pulled discs a from my shelf and took a screengrab of their 3.14 mark.
  2. I randomly pointed to DVDS on my instant watch queue and took a screengrab of the 3.14 mark.
  3. If any of those were television shows I chose the 3rd episode somewhere during the 14th minute. Get it? Yes, I am crazy.
    point something.  Because Darren Aronofsky didn't come in to the picture I had to throw in one of those, too.

First come. First serve. Please only guess one movie in each comment to give other people a shot... and if it's TV you gotta name the season at least. Extra points for choosing the right episode title too.

All the puzzles have been solved by TFE's visually savvy readerhip, but after the jump you can still play. Check your answers with the highlightable text!

March 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmir

#8 is definitely Charlotte from Pushing Daisies. Season 1, episode 3: "The Fun in Funeral"

I still routinely mourn for the loss of that show. Sigh. </sadness>

2. A Woman Under the Influence.

March 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSeeking Amy

Dangit! Didn't see someone already got it.

March 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSeeking Amy

10. The Fountain

March 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSteve

Totally off topic, but Nick Davis's widely anticipated (by me) Best Actress nominee rankings are up. Except not really. He's saving them for a book! Wherever they're selling this book, I am so there--I just want to know where I can pre-order a copy. I had a feeling he would rank Portman last in what was a really strong field, but I'm curious now whether he agrees with me that Michelle Williams is #1.

March 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPercy

Total guess, but is #6 BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (Season 3)?

March 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRyan T.

6 is "Faith, Hope and Trick" from Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Season 3

March 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGJB
